    My old Redfield is turreted, providing either straight or angled capabilities. "Turreted" should have been included in the choices.

    through it and never lose the position.

    Shooting off the bench ether straight or angled work fine but again I like the angled spotter
    placed to my right out of the way.

    For spotting for another shooter for long distances I like to set up behind and just above so I
    can see the vapor trail/shock wave and the angled head makes it possible to sit down and get
    a good steady position so I don't move the scope.

    The scope that I use has a fully adjustable head (Will go from straight to 90o) and is very handy
    in any situation or position.

    The fixed angle type scope would not be an advantage over the straight one IMO.

    Just my opinion

    I have a angled Kowa 821 and love it. With a tilt of the head and I can see the direction and tilt down and see through the scope. It is great for when I'm shooting prone in matches and reading the mirage.

    I like the straight, I find it easier to use,and to put on target,and it is my personal preference nothing against the angle,if I had one I would learn to use it
